Check out below for a continuously updated repository of stories from Mainers across the state who are demanding better, more reliable broadband access.

2023 Maine Legislative Session Testimony
  • LD 422: An Act to Eliminate the Requirement That Municipalities Provide Public Notice in Newspapers

    • What the bill says:​

      • "[A] municipality required by this Title to place a notice in a newspaper may meet this requirement by placing the notice on its publicly accessible website, as long as the notice on the website contains all information required to be published in a newspaper."

    • Our position:

      • Ought Not To Pass: "Until such time that everyone in the State has adequate broadband connectivity, and municipalities and counties are able to maintain adequate websites, and everyone knows how to navigate and engage with the internet, removing the requirement to print municipal public notices in newspapers is taking away the right to know for tens of thousands of Maine citizens."​
